Brighton and Crystal Palace fans clash with police amid 'homophobic chants' claimsDecember 4, 2018
Supporters of both clubs clashed with police close to Brighton train station.
The Argus is reporting that Palace fans chanted homophobic abuse towards the Brighton fans, and this sparked the violence.
The visiting supporters were being given a police escort to the station to catch the train to the Amex Stadium.
But a few supporters are believed to have broken free and confronted Brighton fans drinking at a pub close by.
SunSport has reported how there was an ugly altercation INSIDE the Amex Stadium.
Wilfried Zaha was involved in an ugly confrontation with a Brighton fan before he has even kicked a ball for Crystal Palace.
The winger will be desperate to impress for the Eagles in the M23 derby and help move his side away from danger in the Premier League.
And as the jet-heeled wideman was heading down the tunnel before kick-off tonight, a Brighton fan leant over and offered him his hand.
But that was soon withdrawn, and the home supporter proceeded to deliver a torrent of abuse at the Ivory Coast international.
Zaha managed to keep his cool, and just delivered an icy stare, before the man was moved away by security at the Amex Stadium.
